WACKER® TS 533 US
WACKER® TS 533 US is a solution of a functional silicone fluid that was developed specially as a softener for the tissue industry.
Owing to its special structure and orientation on cellulose fibers, WACKER® TS 533 US is characterized by a good soft hand and an excellent hydrophilicity.
- good soft hand combined with excellent hydrophilicity
- very easily dilutable with water
- low viscosity
- high substantivity on cellulose fibers
- permeable to water vapor
The use of the solution is recommended for all conventional tissue types such as toilet paper, paper, handkerchiefs or cosmetic wipes, which may benefit from a certain soft feel.
The emulsion can be combined with other organic softeners, too, provided an adequate compatibility test has been performed.
If substantial foaming occurs during processing, we recommend our WACKER SILFOAM® antifoam agents.
The product amount should be tailored to the particular tissue being used. It is generally recommended that the tissue should be coated with between 1 and 5 g/m² of WACKER® TS 533 US.
For the application of WACKER® TS 533 US common technologies like roll coating, slot coating, spraying, or rotor damping systems are recommended.
Aerosol formation has to be avoided. In case of aerosol formation special protective measures are required (see Safety Data Sheet).
The "Best use before end date" of each batch is shown on the Certificate of Analysis. Storage beyond the date specified on the Certificate of Analysis does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
